Rice husk was evaluated as a possible additive to composted sawdust of Triplochiton scleroxylon to ascertain its contribution to the biological efficiency (BE) and nutrient content of Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq. ex. Fr.) Kummer. Mycelial growth rate, spawn run period and mean number of fruit body per flush were the other parameters studied. The BE values on the different rice husk concentrations (2, 5, 10, 15 and 20%) were 75.2, 64.0, 49.6, 43.3 and 40.7% respectively indicating an 11% increase… CONTINUE READING
